Lots of news about Katrina and the evacuation of New Orleans and Gulf Coast. Images of massive slow moving lines of cars leaving the low laying areas. Conta flow traffic being allowed. Stories of the tens of thousands without cars being unable to leave the area and having to seek shelter in the Super Dome.
My question, if anyone from that area can tell us; are bicycles being allowed to use all the evacuation routes including limited access highways and bridges, or are they told that only motorists being allowed access to evac routes.
Seeing how that the motor traffic is moving less than bicycle speed, and I am seeing empty shoulders on the highways, it would not seem right if bicycles are turned back.
